Diehards were burrowing, predatory insects native to Atraken.

Biology and appearanceEdit

Diehards had ten legs and a hard chitinous shell. They had a dangerous set of mandibles which they used to attack their prey. Diehards were very resistant to energy weapons such as blasters. They were also immune to radiation, poisons, and viruses.


They were non-sentient and very aggressive. They attacked their prey in swarms and once attached were very hard to dislodge.


Diehards were the only species to survive their homeworld's poisoning during the Clone Wars, earning them their name. They were known to be the prey of the cidwen.
